MACOMB TOWNSHIP — An upcoming charter event is billed as a night of fun, community and support of a new club.

Formed in May, the Kiwanis Club of Macomb will host a charter night from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 18 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club, 48787 North Ave. in Macomb Township.

“Charter night inducts us as a Kiwanis International group,” Kiwanis Club of Macomb Secretary Denise Mansfield said. “We’ll get fully appointed and get pins and certificates.”

Kiwanis Club of Macomb was established as a way for people of all ages and from all backgrounds to make a difference in the lives of children and expand their social network.

“There are too many kids in Macomb who need help learning to read, who need mentors to guide them and who need help finding their opportunity to shine,” said Florencio “Poly” Lat, 2018-19 Kiwanis International club president.

Kiwanis International is a global organization of clubs and members dedicated to serving the children of the world.The Kiwanis International family comprises nearly 558,000 adult and youth members in 82 nations and geographic areas.

Currently, the local club has around 20 members, consisting of local business owners and community members with a desire to support Macomb Township.

“There isn’t an affirmed program in place in Macomb Township to support individuals, families and children, which is why we formed,” Mansfield said. “There was a need and we are going to begin to fill the need.”

Since the club formed, it’s met twice a month, preparing for the charter night. At the charter night, Mansfield said a table will be setup for those interested in becoming a member.
